The Princess Sophie Doll is about 15 inches tall and 3 inches wide (not including the arms and hair.) For Sophie, I recommend using size 4 worsted weight yarn in whatever color you prefer. This particular one used is Yarn Bee Soft and Sleek in Ivory. The hair is I Love this Yarn in Brown and the dress is Yarn Bee Soft and Sleek in Yellow. All of the clothing is removable. The roses are hand sewn and can be found at most craft stores. Buttons, bead, and other crochet appliques would be great here, too! The beauty of the doll is that you are able to customize her in any way you would like! Enjoy making her!

The question I get the most from people is how do I keep the head from wobbling when I sew on the head? The dolls heads do get a little floppy, especially after adding on all that hair! I have three tips (and a no sew option!) that may help!

Bernat Pipsqueak yarn is sooooo soft. Combined with the sweet expression on its face and the rounded hands and feet, I think this may be one of my favorite amigurumis EVER.

I am so excited to make the Amelia doll a FREE pattern! I love making dolls. It is so exciting to make something from yarn that has so much personality and possibility! And the Amelia doll is a great size! She is about 9 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide. Amelia works up fairly quickly so she is a great last minute gift or item for craft fairs. For Amelia, I recommend using size 4 worsted weight yarn in whatever color you prefer. This particular one used Stylecraft’s Special Chunky in Cream. The hair is Lion Brands Silky Twist in chocolate. The dress is Red Heart’s with Love. There are so many different ways to customize this doll! Enjoy making her!
